Robert Redford Quotes
Political activism has been a part of my life and part of the films I try to make. But we don't focus on any one theme or another. We don't take any ideological stance. I'm anti-ideology. Our work tries to transcend politics. Whatever side you're on, we try to show stories from every part of the country, and so 'red state, blue state' doesn't mean a whole lot to us.
About the Sundance Film Festival
I believe history has a habit of repeating itself, that's for sure, but one of things I'm critical of my country on is that we don't seem to take note of the lessons that history teaches us. My country is pretty prone to everything wanting to be black and white, or red, white and blue. And in my experience of life, nothing was ever that simple. No one was dealing with the grey areas. So I decided to become a filmmaker so I could deal with that.
I've bought hundreds of acres around my home. That's why I moved here from the coast. There's plenty of room to roam and be alone with nature. That's living. The city life is merely existing.
